Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

When on twitter the people you follow consist primarily of people from FRC teams across the nation. (http://twitter.com/aschreiber)

When a date with your gf consists of building a vex robot and discussing another vex robot with her father. Or for that matter, going to said gf's house and spending 2 hrs helping her dad debug code for his vex robot.

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

When you go shopping at Wet Seal and buy a robot shirt, wear it to a robotics meeting, and can't wait to show it to all your FIRST friends across the country : D

When you dress as a FIRSTer for Halloween and use colored Zip Ties to hold back your hair. **No one understodd what I was. I was sad.**

Re: You know you've overdosed on FIRST when...

When you have an AP US history test tomorrow, and, although you know you ought to be studying, you can't seem to tear yourself away from your PowerPoint presentation for potential sponsors. (The war of 1812 is irrelevant anyway, right?)

I noticed this, but I did add a countdown application and set it for Kickoff, but it still isn't quite the same.

when you reach over the pick up an allen wrench, and you can tell whether or not the allen wrench is the correct size by simply touching it...

The plot-line of the movie Stealth reminds you of when you programmed autonomous.

When you're hearing all this talk about weddings, and you make sure to tell all your robotics friends that if anyone ever plans on proposing to you that it better be at the national competition.
